Subaru Outback

Are you in the market for an SUV that can keep you on the road during those longer drives while you cruise past gas station after gas station? Both the Outback and the Edge offer top-notch fuel economy with their advanced engines.

Comparing MPG Ratings

While both models have impressive fuel economy, the Outback one-ups the Edge. One major difference is the Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). It’s only available on the Outback, providing optimal shift points for the ideal MPG rating that clocks in at an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG.*

The Edge, on the other hand, comes with a traditional 8-speed automatic transmission, which only helps it achieve an EPA-estimated 21 city/28 highway MPG.

Fuel Tanks

Of course, how much fuel your model can hold is also important. Both models also come with an 18.5-gallon fuel tank, so you can make the most of their efficient MPG ratings.

In the Outback, this could give you enough fuel to travel more than 600 miles on one tank. In comparison, the Edge has a maximum range of just 518 miles with one tank.

Subaru Outback

From grocery trips down the road to vacations out of town, your car is meant to carry it all. You can pack up adventuring equipment, suitcases, or even a new piece of furniture in these SUVs. Plus, both models have folding rear seats to extend your cargo volume.

Enough Cargo Volume for Camping Supplies

One of the highlights of the Subaru Outback interior would certainly be the amount of cargo volume it offers. Whether you’re collecting the various supplies needed for your next off-road excursion or moving into a new place, you’ll have 75.7 cubic feet of cargo room at your disposal once you fold down the second-row seats. That will definitely come in handy.

The Ford Edge falls short in the cargo department—it can only store up to 73.4 cubic feet.

Hands-Free Access

Both models give you equally easy access to the cargo area when outfitted with their available Hands-free Power Rear Gate. If your hands are full, simply kick your foot under the back bumper and open sesame. Toss everything in and hit the road!

Subaru Outback

Both the Subaru Outback and the Ford Edge are always ready to tackle the road less traveled. When you want to hit the trails, though, you’ll want the vehicle with the best off-roading features.

Spotlighting All-Terrain Abilities

Both models come standard with all-wheel drive, which for the Subaru is Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. It sends the ideal amount of power to the wheels with the best grip, so you’ll always enjoy the confidence that comes with sure-footed control.

X-MODE® is one feature you’ll only get with the Subaru Outback. It’s expertly engineered to adjust your SUV’s performance for off-road travel.

Subaru Exclusives

The available dual-function X-MODE® includes additional drive settings for Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud.

The available 180-Degree Front-View Monitor is another system that’s only offered with the Outback. It will provide a closer look at the path that lies ahead, so you can expertly chart the trail before you.
